The Bro Code

selfprofessedgeek Blog 6 comments

Who is a bro?: A bro is a person who would give you the shirt off his back when he doesn't want to wear it anymore. A bro is a person who will bend over backwards to help you bend someone else over backwards. In short, a bro is a life long companion you can trust will anyways be there for you, unless he's got something else going on.

  • A bro is always entitled to do something stupid as long as the rest of his bros are all doing it.
  • Whether he cares about sports or not, a bro cares about sports.
  • A bro never sends a greeting card to another bro.
  • Bros do not share dessert.
  • Unless he has children, a Bro shall not wear his cellphone on a belt clip.
  • Even in a fight to the death, a Bro never punches another Bro in the groin.
  • A Bro shall always say yes in support of a Bro.
  • If a Bro asks another Bro to keep a secret, he shall take the secret to his grave. This is what makes them Bros, not chicks.
  • A Bro never leaves another Bro hanging.
  • If a Bro gets a dog, it must be at least as tall as his knee when full-grown.
  • A Bro never admits he can't drive stick. Even after an accident.
  • Should a Bro lose a body part due to an accident or illness, his fellow bros will not make lame jokes such as "Give me three!" or "Woah, that crazy thing you did really took a lot of ball." Its still a high five and that Bro still has a lot of balls... Metaphorically speaking of course.
  • All Bros shall dub one of their Bros his wingman.
  • A Bro never dances with his hands above his head.
  • There is no law that prohibits a woman from being a Bro.
  • When wearing a baseball cap, a Bro may position the brim at either 12 or 6 o'clock. All other angles are reserved for rappers and losers. Those two aren't necessarily separate.
  • A Bro doesn't let another Bro get a tattoo, particularly a tattoo of a girl's name.
  • A Bro never removes his shirt in front of other Bros, unless at a resort pool or the beach.
  • A Bro doesn't comparison shop.
  • When on the prowl, a Bro hits on the hottest chick first because... you just never know.
  • When in a public restroom, a Bro (1) stares straight ahead when using the urinal; (2) makes the obligatory comment, "What is this, a chicks' restroom?" if there are more than 2 dudes waiting to pee; and (3) attempts to shoot his used paper towel into the trash can like a basketball... rebounding is optional.
  • A Bro never rents a chick flick.
  • A Bro is under no obligation to open a door for anyone. If women insist on having their own professional basketball league, then they can open their own doors. Honestly, they're not that heavy.
  • A Bro never cries. (Exceptions: watching Field of Dreams, E.T., or a sports legend retire.)
  • Upon greeting another Bro, a Bro may engage in a high five, fist bump, or Bro hug, but never a full embrace.
  • A Bro never applies sunscreen to another Bro.
  • When asked, "Do you need some help?" a Bro shall automatically respond, "I got it," whether or not he's actually got it.

Yes, most of this is taken from elsewhere, but its too funny not to share.

I mean it this time!

I swear, last time I change my name. I reverted to selfprofessedgeek, so that I'm using the same name across most of the sites I've joined and its easier for friends to find me. That and I really like my name, so there.

Yes, that is me in the profile picture. Yes, the shades are awesome. No, you may not have them.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 + 3 mods = ?

selfprofessedgeek Blog 2 comments

So, I took the time this last weekend to throw a couple mods onto Star Wars Battlefront 2 (SWBF2). Specifically, a conversion pack which brought over all the SWBF1 maps and the Mandalorian War pack. After an hour of wondering why it wasn't working, I realized I needed to make sure everything was in the appropriate folders. *facepalm* Should have looked there first, but an hour of frustration was taken care of in 10 clicks. Sad, no? Success, finally, and everything played wonderfully. I especially enjoyed the Mandalorian pack.

Then the other day, arielyssou asked me a question about a certain mod pack he was having issues with for SWBF2. The curious fellow I am, I decided to download the conversion pack mod and patch he was talking about and do it myself. So, I uninstalled the mods I had installed (which consisted of deleting 1 folder) and went through the trouble of downloading the pack. It seemed to corrupt on finishing the download twice and I ended up having to install the mod in safemode. However it did work in the end with no issues whatsoever! Not a bad pack, I prefer the first conversion pack I installed, even though it doesn't have the option of playing as SWBF1 characters.

Anyways, if you read that, you're awesome, 'cause I was just rambling...

Question about gaining levels

selfprofessedgeek Blog

So... how exactly is everything scored here on moddb/desura/indiedb? I know if you add friends, post comments and blogs (like this), upload images, give reviews, etc etc you gain a certain percentage, but does anyone know exactly how much per thing per level? Just wondering, 'cause it was easy at first to see how much everything was for the first couple levels, but now I've got weird percentages....

*edit* Well, aren't you all a load of help. :P

Anyways, a cat can give a thumbs up! Youtube link: Goo.gl

Any #whitenoise/gizmodo commentors in the house?

selfprofessedgeek Blog

Just wondering if we have any representation in Desura. I've changed my profile pic so that you'll recognize me if you've been on gizmodo/#whitenoise for even a little bit.

And if you aren't a gizmodo/#whitenoiser, you missed out. Before the blog redesign, it was prolly the best commenting community on the web (at least I think so). So eclectic, fun, and wacky.

*edit* apparently no #whitenoisers out there...

*Attention Grabbing Title*

selfprofessedgeek Blog

*Blog post with nothing relevant to the title of the blog post*

Naw, I'm just kidding, but I guess I should introduce myself. I'm selfprofessedgeek (no duh, right?), an avid gamer (when I have the time) and tech support for friends and family. Some people shorten my name to "self" or "geek" or even "SPG" and I answer to all, including "hey you!"

Computer have been a passion of mine for the last few years, finding out how they work, fixing/upgrading them, and play on/with them. Gaming was a bigger part of my life a year ago, but life kicked in recently in the form of a job and college. Darn life, getting in the way of my fun. However, I do get to play every so often. The game I'm currently enjoying is Just Cause 2, snagged on Steam during that one sale.

So yeah, that's me. Feel free to add me here, on xfire and on steam (all under selfprofessedgeek). I'll answer most questions (when I have time) and I'll ask some myself. Looking forward to getting to know the crew.
